"She was elusive. She was today. She was tomorrow. She was the faintest scent of a cactus flower, the flitting shadow of an elf owl. we did not know what to make of her. In our minds we tried to pin her to corkboard like a butterfly, but the pin merely went through and a away she flew." - Jerry Spinelli, "Stargirl"

I believe there is a force in this world that lives beneath the surface, something primitive and wild that awakens when you need an extra push just to survive, like wildflowers that bloom after fire turns the forest black. Most people are afraid of it, and keep it buried deep inside themselves. But there will always be a few people who have the courage to love what is untamed inside us. - From ‘Katie’ in the movie “Flicka”
(today's "Good Thought" is a good thought sandwich. good thoughts = the bread slices, cool picture = the meat & cheese. eat up, ya'll - it's good for you. thoughts are like food. we can choose to feed ourselves with the best of the best to keep ourselves full & functioning or the not-so-good stuff that leaves us drained, tired and in pain. it's up to us.)
